What are the do’s and don’t’s of dog training? This is something that every dog owner needs to be aware of, especially if they want to be successful at training their dogs. Not because someone tells you how to train your dog means that they know everything there is to know about the subject. There are times in which applying the wrong training technique or applying a training method at the wrong time might be contra productive in your effort of training your pet.
The do’s and dont’s of dog training are not something so complicated, and these can be easily understood by even the simplest pet lover and dog owner trying their hand at dog training.
Every owner ought to become familiar with the don’t’s of dog training, especially if they want to prevent their dogs from getting into trouble in the future. One of the critical facts that the owner needs to keep in mind is that dogs are all different. Even dogs of the same breed are different. There are not two dogs that are alike. Therefore it can’t be expected that these dogs respond to training in the same way.
When a new pup comes into a new home where there is already an older dog, it is good to make sure that the dogs get along well. Avoid neglecting the puppy around the older dog without guidance, as the older dog might not show too much patient toward the younger one, especially if the pup is over excited and they tend to be when they arrive at a new home.
As the owner, you must not allow other dogs to be rude to your dogs, so it is best to keep a watch on them. You should also not ignore your dog when you feel that she is trying to tell you something especially if you notice something amiss in her behavior. Never impose your training goals to your dog and never punish a dog for doing something wrong.
Let’s examine some of the do’s of dog training. Something that dog owners often ignore is that dogs required personal space, just because they are animals do not mean that they don’t need or deserve their space when they need it. Another thing that dogs need is socialization with other pets. And finally, they need to be respected the same way that you want to be recognized.
You will realize that when dogs dislike another dog, a person or another pet, they are most of the time being protective. Dogs are very loyal, and they tend to show their loyalty by disapproving of what they thing could be dangerous or a threat to their owners. Your dog knows that you are not only her master and trainer, but her protector, and in exchange, she wants to be yours.
